Rev Online

I've never tried uploading to RevOnline before, mainly because I didn't have anything worthwhile to contribute. After reading so many reports that it was broken I decided to see if I could log on and see where the issues are, then at least I would know what people were talking about.

I couldn't log on initially with my normal Rev user/password, so I used the 'Forgot your password?' option and soon received a new password, then I could Log-in OK.

I built a very small test stack to try the upload and it failed with an error that told me it couldn't report the error because the script was locked! So not wanting to be beaten I tried a few different things and eventually it worked. The mistake I was making originally was to try to add an image at the same time as uploading the stack, so once I uploaded a stack first and then used 'Edit Stack' to add the preview image everything worked fine.

If the upload failed RevOnline seemed to throw a wobbly, so I did log out and log back in again after each failed attempt.

I am currently using a 2009 iMac on Lion 10.7.4 and LC 5.5.1 on a very slow cable connection. The stack was very small (9.3KB) and the preview image is a Jpeg file.

Maybe something was fixed recently (I know I'm much happier with some of the bug fixes in LC 5.5.1), but if anybody is waiting to upload stacks to RevOnline it could be worth trying again.

I hope this helps someone.
